    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Yes - I wear it very often - my only issue is that it's too slim (through the sleeves in particular) to wear on top of a suit/jacket. So I wear mine on business casual or casual days

    Fit pic? I only found one from someone who was selling and it was a good decision in their case but the jacket looks interesting unworn so I'm wondering.

    Sorry I don't have any. I'm talking about the SB trench btw, not a jacket. It's a very simply made garment (e.g. no lining at all) but well cut and rather inexpensive IIRC

    Anyone who has experience with this trench coat? I think it looks very nice, and comes with great features such as 100 % cotton fabric and detachable wool liner, though for that price I can't really believe that it is "handmade in England"? For me, it does now stand between that trench and this, which also looks fantastic and has the advantage (I think) of being woven in the Grenfell cotton, which I've heard only good things about. Unfortunately this trench does not come with a detachable liner, and the price is also considerably higher than the other trench.

    Which one of these trench coats would you pick?

    To me the tan trench coat is one of the all-time classics. Years ago my mother bought me one as a graduation present. They were true style long before I was born and will be long after I'm gone. Many of today's 30 somethings may have lost track of the classics.
